SORONA® FOR SPANDEX REPLACEMENT
The next big thing in stretch. And no, we're not talking about a new yoga move. We're talking about replacing spandex (or elastane) with Sorona® fibers to achieve permanent, mechanical stretch and recovery with a better-for-the-planet profile.
Reach for the stars instead of your garbage bin. Extend the life of apparel by replacing spandex with Sorona® fibers. Stretch from Sorona® doesn't breakdown overtime, with heat, UV rays, or chlorine exposure meaning clothes continue to look, feel, and perform great each time you wear them.
Life is too short to wear uncomfortable clothes. Sorona® can be used in any apparel where stretch is needed: tops, bottoms, swimwear, suiting, lingerie, athleisure, sportswear, casual wear, denim, footwear. So whether you are pulling on a t-shirt before climbing into bed or donning your favorite pair of jeans for a night on the town, your clothes will be ready to move with you.
Sorona® fibers are dyeable - all the way through - so gone are the days of all black (although it's fashionable!) or wrapping with another fiber. Sorona® holds its color strongly, so yellow staining and challenges with opacity are no concern.
There is no need to compromise on performance to achieve a more eco-conscious product. Sorona® is partially bio-based and has an efficient manufacturing process. Unlike spandex, Sorona® is recyclable in any normal polyester recycling stream, creating garments that have a more responsible end of life story.
MOVE WITH A PURPOSE
With the natural quality of Sorona®, clothing becomes effortlessly soft and endlessly flexible. Whether you spin it, weave it or wear it, it’s designed to inspire. It moves you past your limitations and it feels as honest and as comfortable as you do in your own skin.
MAGNIFY THE DETAILS
When you design something as refined as Sorona® fiber, details matter. The curve of an arm, the bounce of a step, a change in the weather - it matters. It's why fabric made with Sorona® is the superior choice for clothing designers who are inspired to take innovation to a higher level. A place where fabrics are unmatched in look, feel, and performance. When these delicate details are all spun together, whether that's blending Sorona® with other naturals or synthetics, you can feel the results.
